Christopher S Run a half marathon in less than 1:40hrs Challenge

Contributorgold Christopher S I'm claiming this one today. Even if the organisers don't credit me with a sub 1hr40 gun time (disputed 1:40:05), I did take more than 4 seconds to cross the start.

Christopher S Register for a Half Marathon! Challenge

Contributorgold Christopher S WAMC Darlington Half Marathon 12/3/17 booked. Revisiting the event for the second year running. I didn't have a particularly good race last year, suffered in the sun during the second half. 1:57:21 to beat, I hope to do much better than that.

Alan S and Kevin G encouraged this.

Alan S Half marathon Tribe

Contributorgold Alan S So I ran my first HM on Sunday in a pleasing time of 1:36.08. Would I do it again? I decided to wait a few days to give it some thought, to ensure any decisions were not taken in the immediate aftermath. A few days is now up. So would I run another HM? Yes, definitely.

I enjoyed following the training program that progressively built up my longest run to ten miles - Wednesday evening became long run time, and it became a part of the week I genuinely looked forward to. Just me and the road.

The race itself was great, although a little daunting as I would be entering the unknown after the ten mile mark. It helped being such a large event with good crowds in places offering encouragement. It is amazing how a small thing like a stranger saying "You're going great, Alan" helps, even if you know they've only read your name from your race number. Biggest problem with the race was trying to slow myself down to a safe pace, to ensure I didn't blow up at any point. Now I know I can run a HM, my next one will be a less 'pleasant' experience. :)

But the best aspect of the whole journey was managing to train for fourteen weeks without injury. At the beginning of the year when I was suffering with regular calf pains, I really did not expect it. I did have one scare mid-way through my plan when I woke one morning after a long run with a sore left achilles. At that point I dropped down to just two runs/week and did plenty of stretches. It did the trick as it is no longer an issue.

Now to choose my next HM... ;)
